A botanical silk dyeing workshop for participants aged 18-25yrs with artist Emma Chow that melds art, science and personal connections with water.


Emma Chow is currently artist in residence for The Living Coast (Brighton, Hove & Lewes Downs UNESCO Biosphere). Her residency, entitled Stream to Sea, is exploring parallels between the water-cycle, the life-journey of humans and the lifecycle of materials. More specifically, Emma is researching the River Ouse and the chalk reef at the Undercliff Walk, tracing water’s journey through the Biosphere: how it shapeshifts, gives life to fauna and flora, how it is impacted by human behaviors, what we get from it practically and emotionally.

Drawing on her scientific and field research, Emma will be inviting workshop participants to contribute to the next stage of her research: understanding the reciprocal relationship between humans and water. Participants will be asked to share some of their watery memories and experiences, as well as imagine future possibilities for our relationship with water, as the first stage in designing and making a dyed silk artwork.
